Kerryn Fields Name

Fuelled by reverence, integrity and a deep spiritual connection to the human experience, New Zealand songwriter Kerryn Fields paints timeless musical portraits that do what others rarely can: bring us home to ourselves. 

"Pure Magic"

Radio 13

 

With several awards and nominations to her name (Music Victoria Best Folk Work 2022, Music Victoria Best Solo Artist & Best Record Finalist 2022, AFMA Contemporary Album of the Year, Music Victoria Folk Act of the Year and Amplify Award finalist, 2021), Fields’ trademark warmth of character , evident in both life and music, fuels a creative offering that expands well beyond her command of guitar, voice and audience. 

"Utterly irresistible"

Beat Magazine 


With one hand on guitar and the other firmly upon heart, music moved Fields through a time when chronic illness, family separations and the weight of life changes presented this artist with her biggest challenges yet. It would be her relocation to Melbourne during which Fields would settle into her most significant relationship to date: that with her newfound network of fellow career singers, songwriters and performers. Life as she’d known it would change forever. 

 

"Personal, tender and passionate at once"

NZ Musician

 

'Water', Kerryn Fields’ 2021 LP details a love story at heart, it details Fields’ journey to Australia - the homesickness, the letting-go, and the falling into love. Raw, evocative and summoning an emotional force greater than the sum of its parts, its 10 tracks were signed off just as Fields relinquished control to the will of her elders - a journey that coursed her through the rivers, mountains and valleys of the heartland. Likewise, songs such as Black Fire and St Kilda Pier narrate tales of new land across shore, shaping Fields’ growing connection to Country - and self, at that.

 

"Showstopping voice"

Loud Women

 

Ultimately, it was Kerryn Fields' early acceptance of the love and pure kindness offered to her by doctors, nurses, therapists and carers that would shape her ability to heal others with her music. It would come as no surprise, then, that the core of Fields’ enduring appeal is her ability to relate - both intensely, and authentically - to those in her presence.

“Folk Singer, Magician, Empress”

Sunburnt Country 

 

In the realm of storytellers, Kerryn Fields emerges as a widely adored figure. Celebrating her official showcase at Folk Alliance International 2024 with an acoustic EP, 'The Folk Singer', that dives deeper into Fields' personal journey. Exploring themes of creation, climate change, and chronic illness, where every note echoes the resonance of a true folk luminary.

 

“An exceptional collection of songs that are honest, personal, and poetic”

Sounds of OZ 

 

Radiating warmth, humor and a depth of character that’s palpable as soon as she enters a room, Fields utilises music and storytelling as a vehicle for doing what she does best: making peace with her own human existence. It’s because of this startling ability to meet and embrace herself so willingly that others feel able to do the same.

Kerryn Fields has appeared at Port Fairy Folk Festival, Out On The Weekend, Blue Mountains Festival, Cygnet Folk Festival, Newstead Live, Seven Sisters, Artswells (CAN), and more. She has landed coveted support slots with the likes of Nashville’s Lillie-Mae and the Grammy Award-winning Cedric Burnside.

 

Also appearing as one half of Americana-Folk duo ‘Matt Joe Gow & Kerryn Fields’ their debut album ‘I Remember You’ is layered with honest songwriting and ragged instrumentation Equal parts uplifting and introspective, exploring themes of love, loss and the indelible marks left by the places we call home.
